Russell Brand Crusading for Meditation

Russell Brand has become one of the most outspoken meditation advocates of our generation.

Russell Brand didn’t have the easiest childhood.  Sexually abused at seven years old, Brand suffered from psychological dysfunction as a youth and drug addiction as a teenager.  Finding fame as an actor and comedian didn’t do much for him psychologically; Brand later described his experience of fame and fortune as “ashes in my mouth.”  However, he eventually found meditation, which turned his life around completely.

Brand is now one of the most outspoken advocates of meditation in our generation, and has become a very popular speaker within the Transcendental Meditation organization (which has attracted a large following of celebrities, like Jennifer Aniston, Ellen Degeneres, and Jerry Seinfeld).

Talking about Russell Brand is all well and good and everything, but hearing his eloquent oration is sooo much better 🙂  Enjoy!
